Subject: RE: [emergency] FEMA IPAWS Note on CAP Profile

Can't blame you for wanting to put that on the record, Rex, but I should point out that the issue isn't just whether you've received explicit instructions, but whether you (or any other DHS contractor) could reasonably be expected to act independently when DHS representatives have expressed a strong preference, given that your (their) own livelihood is involved.

Thanks for the clarification, Alessandro,

For myself, I don't consider it a Conflict of Interest, but I can be 
seen as compromised by the fact that I have accepted a subcontract 
from OASIS, at least verbally, to help facilitate this work. I have 
not been given instructions about how to carry out this work, nor 
have I been pressured to take any positions with regard to the issues 
under consideration. My current position with regard to the inclusion 
of Appendix B in the candidate Committee Draft for a 60-Day Public 
Review is that I have no preference strong enough to prompt me to 
support including or deleting it. This doesn't happen very often, but 
it is now.
